I had a very interesting conversation with a friend of mine. My friend Bob is very strong thinker as I’m much more of a feeler. We got into the topic of dating when I asked him about women and their looks. I will admit that how a woman looks is important to me…it’s not the most important but it’s still something I consider. My friend said that looks is only one facet of information that we get. And like everything else, we’ll come to either accept or reject someone based on their looks.
In other words, if you’re not attracted to someone when you meet them, you may grow to accept them despite this.
This is actually not as horrifying as it sounds. Put simply, Bob equated looks to any other quirk. It is only the society at large puts a large value on looks that makes the evaluation much harder. And I think this is something worth thinking about.
